Delhi, 06 Aug, 2019: Giving shock to the Congress, its senior leader Janardhan Dwivedi has come out open in support of Modi Government on Jammu and Kashmir.
Hailing the Modi Government’s move to scrap Article 370, Janardhan Dwivedi said on Monday “a historic blunder had been remedied today." Janardan Dwivedi also said that his political guru Ram Manohar Lohia was always against Article 370.
Saying that he was not speaking on behalf of the party but giving his personal opinion, Dwivedi asserted that there was no doubt that measures related to Jammu and Kashmir would be passed in Lok Sabha tomorrow.
The Congress leader's statement came even as Congress opposed the scrapping of Article 370, saying that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) murdered the Constitution and the democracy. Earlier on Monday, leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government has murdered the Constitution of India and democracy by scrapping Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
